What is the earliest evidence for the existence of superfluidity in neutron stars?

I'm about to present the subject in a seminar and I'm under the impression that at the moment there is no conclusive evidence the superfluidity actually exists in neutron stars (although it is widely believed to be so?).

I've found this review by Chamel (2017), but it doesn't seem to be very conclusive.

    $\begingroup$ I think the best evidence is the rapid cooling of the neutron star remnant in Cas A. But as that is discussed in your Chamel reference, I don't think I can add anything. $\endgroup$ – Rob Jeffries Jan 11 '18 at 16:19
